Book Review: 100 Cupboards and Dandelion Fire by N.D. Wilson


This is a Guest Post by Elisabeth Gygax, daughter of Hans Gygax

This article was originally published at Faithful Nation, which website is at least temporarily shut off by the web hosting company.

Our family has watched many videos of Doug Wilson. He’s a godly Christian man. And we’ve seen his son, N.D. Wilson, follow in his steps. So when my Dad saw that he’d written some children’s books… well, what could go wrong?

So Dad ordered his first two books in a series- 100 Cupboards and Dandelion Fire– from the library. And he brought them home for us children to read. We all love reading, so I and three of my younger brothers immediately pounced on them. From what our Dad and my older brother had gathered from what they had read, we got the impression that these books would be spiritual- written as if one is deep within the spiritual realm and it is real life. So we didn’t quite catch what was going on at first.

The first book we had some questions about, but it wasn’t obvious. But when it came to the second one… it was too much. I told my brothers to stop reading the books but finished them myself for the full context. I brought my concerns to my dad. He asked me to write a review, which I did. And then he asked me to write this article.

Although N.D. Wilson is highly imaginative and a very talented writer, there are some major concerns I have about his books that I strongly feel must be addressed. I do this because I am concerned for my fellow Christians who may read Wilson’s books- especially because they are written by a Christian author. We, as Christians, don’t want to create anything that will dishonor God, do we? And as Christians, do we want to fill our minds with things that displease God, even though they’re just make-believe? I know what’s right and what’s wrong, you say. A little make believe won’t hurt me.

Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

And what about 2 Corinthians 10:5?

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”

When we read a book or watch a movie or anything in between, we need to ask ourselves this question: What lessons is this teaching? And we need to pray that God will give us discernment, for although we are Christians and Satan cannot control us, we can still be oppressed by him if we allow it. Evil spirits can still influence us if we open ourselves up. Even if we don’t realize it.

And how will we answer this question? With the Word of God. The answer to all our questions when determining right from wrong can and should be found there (see 2 Timothy 3:16-17, for example). So this is what we are going to do with the two books 100 Cupboards and Dandelion Fire: we’re going to break them down and answer that question.

Please note that I am not, by any of this article, implying that N.D. Wilson is not saved and/or that he did anything wrong purposefully. Our family used to defend “white” magic in books, movies, etc., as well, thinking of it as just a fun, make-believe thing. But now that God has opened our eyes, I cannot say nothing to my fellow Christians if the occasion arises. And I believe that the need has arisen. I do this for my fellow Christians. I do this in prayer that maybe the Lord will use this article to help them to consider that perhaps we have blended with the world’s thinking in some areas. I write this not only for the sake of N.D. Wilson’s work, but to compare all magic with Scripture. What does the Scripture say about this subject? We must know. So without further ado, let’s begin.

Question: What lessons are 100 Cupboards and Dandelion Fire teaching?

  1. That there are two kinds of magic: “Black” and “White”

This fact will be obvious to anyone who reads these books. “White” magic is “good” magic. And if the good people in the books are using magic for good… well, then the books are obviously saying that there is such a thing as good magic. Magic can be used for either good or evil, they say… but stop. What does God tell us about magic?

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all these things are an abomination to the Lord.” — Deuteronomy 18:10-12

The subject of magic can be found all over in the Bible, but these are some of the prominent verses that first came to my mind. After I wrote that down, I decided to look up the Hebrew definitions of several words pertaining to our subject.

Here they are:
Divination– Divine sentence- witchcraft
Witchcraft– To whisper a spell- to enchant or practice magic sorcery
Enchanter– Whisper a magic spell
Witch– To enchant or practice magic- a sorcerer
Wizard– A conjurer

And for a few other words not contained in Scripture, I used the Webster’s 1828 dictionary, a very reliable source for the older definitions of words and a reliable Christian dictionary as well. Webster even references to verses oftentimes.

Conjure (Webster’s Dictionary): To expel, to drive or affect, in some manner, by magic arts… or by use of certain words, characters, or ceremonies to engage supernatural influence; as, to conjure up evil spirits…

Magic (Webster’s Dictionary): The art or science of producing wonderful effects by the aid of superhuman beings, or of departed spirits; sorcery; enchantment

In no place in the Bible is magic portrayed as good. It’s always evil. It’s a bonding of the soul with demons, and using their power. Those who practice such works are to be put to death (see Exodus 22:18). So we see clearly that even “white” magic is forbidden and completely wicked. There cannot be “good” magic- especially because it is a force apart from God’s power.

But what if, you say, God could portray His power with magic?

Why in the world would He do that? Why would He show forth His holy power using something He hates? Why would He permit His children to use the power of demons? A witch is clearly to be killed (Exodus 22:18) so why would He allow His children to do as witches do? There are no such things as “good” witches. Witches are sorcerers, ones who whisper magic spells. This is not God’s power working through His children. This is the work of demons.

But, you protest, the witch in the two books was portrayed as evil! Well, let’s look again at the definition of the word witch in Hebrew.

Witch– To enchant or practice magic- a sorcerer

By this definition, aren’t a whole lot of characters in the book practicing witchcraft? God will cut off those who go a whoring after wizards and familiar spirits (see Leviticus 20:6). Wizardry and using the devil’s power are one the same. In 2 Kings 21:6, it says that King Manasseh 
“made his son to pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger.” So here we see that sacrificing our children, observing times, using enchantments, and dealing with devils and wizards are all in the same category!

For there are only two powers in the world: God’s and Satan’s. The wizards get their power from the familiar spirits (devils). But, you protest, white magic cannot be the power of devils, for the users are doing good. They are using magic for a good cause.

Cannot Satan appear to do good? He himself appears as an “angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). It is often incredibly difficult to see through Satan’s disguises, and that is why we need to

“[B]elieve not every spirit, but try the spirits to see whether they are of God” (1 John 4:1).

How will we try the spirits? Through God’s Word. For it is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness (1 Timothy 3:16).

Hebrews 4:12:

“For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

Besides, they are clearly not using God’s power in Wilson’s work, or in any of the books/movies I’ve seen throughout my life with white magic. No one ever gives any credit for anything to God. Is this the case throughout Scripture, with the people who served God? The miracles and wonders God works are clearly His doing. Consider Elijah. What about Elisha? What about Jesus? The apostles? It was God’s hand at work throughout all the miracles, signs, and wonders, and everyone knew it. And, if they didn’t, the ones whom God used to work the miracle made sure it was known to be God’s hand. In 1 Kings 17, after Elijah prayed to God and God brought the widow’s dead son back to life, Elijah brought the widow’s son to her, saying, “See, thy son liveth.” And what was her response? “Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the Word of the Lord in thy mouth is truth.” (1 Kings 17:23-25). When God used Paul and Barnabas to heal a lame man in Acts 17, and the people would have worshipped them, Paul and Barnabas ripped their clothes and ran among the people, saying that they themselves were also men, and that they were only trying to preach that the people should turn to God (see Acts 14).

2. That there is, ultimately, no God

Even though N.D. Wilson does mention God twice in his book when Henry (sort of) prayed on page 225 of Dandelion Fire and when Eli swears “before God and these witnesses” on page 338, the books, as far as I know, never mention Him before or afterwards and never give Him any credit for anything. I don’t see why Wilson even bothered to mention Him at all.

And listen to this part; when Henry, our main character, was being christened, what his beautiful, gentle mother Hyacinth (yes, definitely portrayed as a good character) told the priest who was christening Henry:

Priest: “Who fathered this child?”
Hyacinth: “Mordecai Westmore.”
Priest: “Who bore him?”
Hyacinth: “I did.”
Priest: “What path is meant for his feet?”
Hyacinth: “The one true path.”
Priest: “What God shall walk before him?”
Hyacinth: “The true Gods shall be the God before him.
(Dandelion Fire, page 415. Emphasis added)

Here, clearly, it says Gods (plural). And who on earth are the “true Gods”? The Bible clearly says that there is only ONE God (see Mark 12:32; 1 Timothy 2:5) and that we shall have NO other gods before Him (see Exodus 20:3).

If N.D. Wilson’s work is not pressing God as God, who is it pressing as God? Who should you trust? Wilson’s work answers. Yourself, and the power in you. The magic you possess. Your own power. Not God’s.

(Ex: Dandelion Fire, pages 450-454)

Listen to what Caleb, Henrietta’s uncle (who is definitely portrayed as a good character), says to Henrietta on page 341 of 
Dandelion Fire:

“Be stubborn,” Caleb said. “As stubborn as a stone mule.” She (Henrietta) clenched her teeth and expanded her fistfuls of mane. She could do that. Caleb continued, his voice a chant. “Your life is your own, your glory is your glory, but you will lose it if you keep it for yourself. Grasp it for the sake of others.” (Emphasis added)

She (Henrietta) clenched her teeth and expanded her fistfuls of mane. She could do that. Caleb continued, his voice a chant. “Your life is your own, your glory is your glory, but you will lose it if you keep it for yourself. Grasp it for the sake of others.” (Emphasis added)

As Christians, our life is 
not our own- it’s Christ’s (See Mark 8:34-36) and our glorying must be in the Lord (see 2 Corinthians 10:20) because we can do no good on our own (see Psalm 53:2-3). True, the quote says not to keep our honor for ourselves, but to “grasp it for the sake of others”? We are to give our lives and glory to God- not grasp it for ourselves or others.

3. Occult

N.D.’s work also includes occult practices, such as:

Astral walking

Astral walking is the practice of leaving one’s body and traveling wherever one wants. The first time Henry did it, it was an accident, but he practices it later and uses it when imprisoned to leave the room and wander about (see 
Dandelion Fire, pages 313-319).

Astral walking is very real and is practiced today. Why in the world do we want our children to do this occult practice? Oh no, you exclaim, that’s not true! Isn’t it? You give your child a book in which the reader becomes attached to the “good” characters, and you don’t expect them to imitate and admire those characters’ actions? We become like those we are around, whether those people live next door or live in the book on the shelf. Our hearts are tied to them and we, though we may be unconscious of it, become like them. (See Proverbs 13:30 and Mark 6:21).

Books on magic

Everyone knows that witches have their spell books and all, right? And everyone knows that magic can be used for either good or evil, right? Wait!- that’s wrong. Magic is wicked and damned by God, so it is not justified if we use it for a good purpose. So if you found spell books, what would you do with them? Well, in Wilson’s book, Monmouth- the “good” wizard who becomes Henry’s friend- read them. After all, who wouldn’t want to study magic, right?

Let’s look to the Scripture. Yes, books on magic do occur- in Acts 19. Let’s see:

“And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. So mightily grew the Word of God and prevailed.” (Acts 19:18-20)

What happened when the people at Ephesus who formerly used curious arts (magic) were converted? They burned their books on magic. Those books cost fifty thousand pieces of silver altogether, and they burned them. And it says that the Word of God grew and prevailed mightily.


Dreamwalking is a very real thing that people practice today and is altogether wicked and full of magic. It includes being able to control one’s own dreams even to the extent of choosing where one is, being able to enter another’s dreams, and even being able to possess another’s mind, whether human or animal. You can find articles made by people explaining how to dreamwalk all over. It is similar to astral walking but not the same. Do you know what they say? Using dreamwalking, one can see and commune with spirits. With demons.

In Dandelion Fire, our main character uses this dreamwalking multiple times, primarily on pages 310-313 of Dandelion Fire, just before he astral walks.

4. Other Questionable Topics

The ability to look inside others and see who they are

This happens in a few places on N.D’s book. Henry did this to Nella, the kind woman who took care of him with her husband, both of whom possessed the second sight, and to Monmouth (pages 167-168, 312 of 
Dandelion Fire). This goes against what the Bible teaches, that only God can see the heart (1 Samuel 16:7, Jeremiah 17:10). Monmouth also did this to Henry at the same time as Henry did it to him.

The World

In Wilson’s world, everything is magic. I mean, everything. Everything is made up of magic. Of words, spirals, songs, magic. Everything. Including people. It’s a magic that can be read, if you have the second sight and the knowledge. This is what Wilson has replaced with God’s beautiful world. He’s replaced it with something God hates.

Special Powers

Wilson’s books also teach that if one is a seventh son, they automatically have the second sight, that any random woman can have the second sight, and that seventh sons can bind to living things, to green growing things. (See Dandelion Fire, pages 167-169, 296). When you are a seventh son, especially a “green man” (seventh sons who are connected to green growing things) you don’t need to be a wizard. You have the magic powers already.

What in the world are we teaching our children? That because of your order of birth you automatically have the second sight? That having the second sight is perfectly okay and if you want to be cool like Henry, you actually 
want it?

Evil can triumph over good if it is strong enough

When we are Christians, the very gates of hell cannot stand against us (Matthew 16:18) because of Jesus, who won the keys of hell and death (Revelation 1:18) and who reins over all and sits on the right hand of God (see 1 Peter 3:22). We have all power through Jesus’ Name over even demons (see Luke 10:17-19) and we are heirs with Christ (Romans 8:16-17).

Yet despite all this, Wilson’s books- as seems to be the case with all magical books- have it so that good can triumph over evil if it’s strong enough. You’d just better hope that the white magic inside you is stronger than a wizard’s black magic if you happen to run into one, because if his black magic happens to be stronger…

This concept is easily seen by anyone who reads Wilson’s books. This concept can be found, I believe, in nearly every book wherein there is white magic vs. black. Thinking back to all the books and movies I read and watched before God opened my parents’ eyes to the truth about magic, I can see this concept everywhere. And yet, can evil triumph over good? Can the devil ever triumph over Jesus? No. The only way the devil could triumph over a Christian would be if they weren’t trusting God or were sinning.

I’ll tell you why black magic can triumph over “white” magic. Because they’re both evil. So that’s not really the problem. The problem is that if we are teaching that magic can be either good or bad, and we have the evil triumphing over the “good”, then what is that teaching our children about good and evil?

That even the good can be possessed by evil, used by evil

Henry, our main character, would have been possessed by Darius, an evil man-wizard, been bound to him and made his, the man-witch’s blood in his veins- had not the son-binding warpspasm malfunctioned (Dandelion Fire, pages 92-96). Like being possessed by an evil spirit. Henry’s mind would no longer have been his own- it would have been Darius’.

What if Henry would have died during the warpspasm process? Well, then Darius would have absorbed Henry’s spirit and its power of the second sight.

This is what Nimane, the witch, using Darius to help, did to everyone that she sensed die- she absorbed their spirits and the power inside. When she destroyed the life of the land, she didn’t just destroy it, she absorbed all its power. Of both good and bad people (See Dandelion Fire, pages 96, 274, 360-363,451). This all is contrary to Jesus’ promise that, as Christians, our souls are safe in Christ and no one will be able to pluck us out of His hand (John 10:28), and that nothing on earth can separate us from His love (Romans 8:38-39).

Yet, all that’s not really a problem, for none of our characters are Christians anyway. Exactly! you say. So why bring it up at all?

Why would we want our children to delve themselves into the realm of evil? We are supposed to be wise (knowledgeable) about good and simple (unlearned) about evil (Romans 16:19). Every book our children read and every movie they watch, they will be affected by. If we allow them to read books that portray evil as good, their little minds, which are still moldable and forming, will be twisted. Subconsciously. Do we want that for our children? Do we want that for us? Do we want to bring evil into our minds?


Another concern I have is the characters’ characteristics, especially the children’s. For example:

Proud and independent, Henrietta refuses to show any signs of weakness, and will lie freely to guard herself. She hides things from her parents and friends, and has almost no remorse at all about lying and even stealing (A few examples: pages 11, 15-16, 19, 55, 239-240, of 
Dandelion Fire). She sneaks into dangerous places without asking or telling anyone (ex: pages 42-50 of Dandelion Fire). She does a lot of this with Henry, who isn’t quite as bad but still does hide lots of things from people (ex: pages 44-49 of 100

The youngest of the Willis family, Anastasia has almost no remorse about lying or sneaking on other people’s conversations (ex: pages 90-94 of 
100 Cupboards). Why would she, anyway? Her older sister does it.

Are these all characteristics we want our children to have? Do we want them to lie or steal, or hide important or dangerous things from us? No, of course not! And yet some of our favorite characters have these as realities in their lives.

Leviticus 19:11: “Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, nor lie one to another.”


My conclusion is this: that if we desire to follow and love the Lord with all our heart, soul, and mind, then we need to always measure everything against His Word. And never accept something just because everyone else, Christian or not, accepts it.

If God’s Word says otherwise, are we willing to change?

Why God Is Not Answering Your Prayers (and a New Website- Faithful Nation)

Greetings in Jesus' name! We have not posted on this blog for quite some time. This summer/autumn has been extremely busy! You can learn more of our happenings on our YouTube channel.

We are pleased to announce that we have joined with Clement Pulaski in a new Ministry titled, "Faithful Nation" which operates under the web address  Going forward, almost all of our content can be found over there. We will continue to post on our YouTube channel as well.

Here is the most recent article Hans posted on Faithful Nation:

Why God is Not Answering Your Prayers

As a Partial-Preterist, I certainly do not believe we are in the last days. But the United States of America may very well be in her last days. And the sad state of Christianity is not helping things either; as even those Christians who appear to be strong, courageous, and uncompromising are falling by the wayside; getting caught up in the same mind as the secular Alt-Right (rather than having the mind of Christ- 1Cor. 2:16), and involved in various other destructive and unbelieving behaviors.
A lot of this has to do with our refusal to obey the commandments of the Lord Jesus, such as:
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” — Matthew 6:33
As opposed to the rest of the world who do not know Christ;
“For all these things do the nations of the world seek after” — Luke 12:30
Professing Christians oftentimes think and behave as the world does:
“They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.” — 1John 4:5,6
Yet it is these very same Christians who ignore the principles of scripture and the commandments of our Lord Jesus Christ, who complain about God not answering prayer. So I want to address the reasons why, professing (or perhaps genuine) Christian, God is not answering your prayers.

Scriptural Principles of Unanswered Prayer
There are very basic and easy to discern scriptures that address this very issue of unanswered prayer. The attitude with most Christians who complain about their prayers not being answered, is that God is here to serve us, and not vice-versa. This is the crux of the entire issue. They are practicing a self-serving Christianity; whether it is ultimately to please their carnal desires, or to see their own desires for good fulfilled for other people they love (yes, even including our people/race/nation). Their goal is not ultimately the glorification of God.

Let us examine the scriptures to identify some of the primary reasons prayer is not answered:
1) “ye… desire to have, and cannot obtain…yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.” – James 4:2,3
God doesn’t answer our prayers when we pray for OUR will to be done, but rather, he responds when we seek to glorify him..
“And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son” — John 14:13.
God answering our prayers depends on our MOTIVE— seeking to glorify HIM.
“THAT the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
NOT, that we may get what WE desire. Think back again at James chapter 4.
Our family has gone through a few spells of prolonged disobedience to God, and during that time, God did not answer prayer. We also noticed that when we prayed for things that WE WANTED he tended not to answer us consistently. But he has consistently answered us when our prayers were directed at glorifying him.

2) “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
– John 15:7
This makes it clear that answered prayer is conditional upon our OBEDIENCE.

3) Moreover, the parable in Luke 11 regarding PERSISTENCE in prayer is applicable. We cannot pray one or two times and then give up. Part of our demonstration of FAITH is that we believe God will answer, to the extent that much time and effort is given, until an answer is received; because why would someone spend hours praying about something if he did not believe it would make a difference? He may as well go spend his time on something he thinks is actually profitable and will make a genuine difference.
“let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.. for he that wavereth… let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord.” — James 1:6,7

4) The principle of being FAITHFUL in that which is least. The principle of being FAITHFUL in unrighteous mammon:
“He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?” — Luke 16:10-12
We cannot expect God to give us more than what we have until we have been faithful with the little we received thus far. If God isn’t giving you more, perhaps it is because you haven’t been faithful, thankful, and content with what he has already given you. And if you are looking for great spiritual or physical blessings when you haven’t been faithful in the simple things of life, it’s not going to happen.

These are just a few principles of scripture. If you are carrying the attitude that I am seeing displayed by many Christians, it’s very clear and obvious why you are in the position you are in. These sins of unfaithfulness, unbelief and self-glorification must be confessed and forsaken.
As always, it is good to be reminded (2Peter 3:1) of the fact that we are here to serve God; he is not here to serve us. And as Christian Nationalists who desire to see our people blessed, we must be forever cautious that our primary desire and concern should be that God’s kingdom is exalted and God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10). It is good to seek the good of our self, our family, and our people/nation. But it comes secondary to our chief concern of glorifying Christ. Every other blessing is a byproduct of the goodness and mercy of God.

Motorola Has Committed Suicide under Lenovo

Hans is back.. sort of. I have been so busy with the new job (over the past year and a half) that I have had not much time to write anymore. I don't have time to read either. I typically have to settle for listening to books or other material, when possible. But today I felt the urge to write.

This blog and even our YouTube channel is likely going to take on the nature of an actual blog. Rather than writing articles or posting videos about specific teachings, we will be using the blog and YouTube channel to simply document what is going on in life. This will likely make things more interesting, especially since we are (hopefully) closing a deal on a 5 acre property very soon. We are pretty excited to share and document, in real time, our adventures of getting started on a real homestead.

So anyway...

I was writing to Anna on my Motorola Droid Turbo 2 from work this morning. She has the Moto Z Droid. When I was typing, I kept running into the problem where the phone zooms in automatically. I noticed this just recently. If you type too fast, it will make your screen zoom in. This did not use to happen. My wife told me, without me even prompting her, that the same thing happens to her, and that it didn't use to happen. She thought at first it was her new phone (she had to get her phone replaced because it was not charging properly, and she only had it for a few months). But what we are discovering is that this is a software problem.

Here are the problems we have had with both of our Motorola phones recently. They are ALL confirmed software problems:

1) When Anna got her Moto Z Droid, shortly after there was an update on the system. This system update effectively made her notification sounds (including texts) barely audible, rendering that portion of the phone practically useless. This software problem continued for some 5-6 months before it was finally solved. You can read about the issue here.

2) Recently, Anna had problems with the phone intermittently not giving any sound, on texts, notifications, phone calls, etc.

3) My Droid Turbo 2's turbo charging no longer works. I have to use a wireless charger to even get it to charge. The Verizon store confirmed this was a software issue as well.

4) Zooming in when typing, as noted above.

So with all these software problems, that happen after so called "upgrades", the thought hit me, "Motorola has committed suicide". Which is true. They are basically running their company into the ground and almost having to give their phones away. I thought it was strange that a $700 flagship phone was on sale last year (when my wife bought it) for barely over $100.00-- and this also included mods for a stereo speaker and additional battery pack.

It is really quite unbelievable how bad of a company Motorola has become since being taken over by Chinese owned Lenovo. There is so much more I could say about these phones. The sad thing is, Motorola phones are actually quite good when they work. I like a lot of the features they have. But I will never buy another Motorola again.

Life Is Busy! Updates And A New YouTube Video

Hello dear readers! We are finally back! Hans and I have been overwhelmed with responsibilities lately, both online and in real life.

In between teaching classes for his work, Hans was able to take our family, all 10 of us, along with him on another recent business trip to West Virginia. The children are loving all of this traveling. Hans, not so much!

We have been working non-stop, fixing up our house to ready it for market. Hopefully by summer we will be able to share with you how God has provided us our homestead!

Good Morning White America has been filling every spare moment of our time producing weekly radio productions, another teaching on humility by Hans which will be posting this week, and hosting bible studies every Sunday.  All of us a GMWA are slowly but surely finding our foot in this chaos, and fine tuning all the way. The vision of actual, local church bodies, an official ministry, and raising more leaders besides Adam, Clement, and Hans are becoming realities. Watching God's hand move in it all has been such a blessing!

As far as our YouTube channel, I have been so busy editing for GMWA, gutting the house and yard, preparing our backyard homestead for spring, and being a busy, homeschooling mama of 9, that it has fallen on the backburner.  But the end of house projects is in sight, and the school year is winding down. I hope to edit our most recent part of our series on Good Morning White America, on homebirth for Biblical National Principles In Every Decision, and get it up on the Swiss Kinist channel soon. If you haven't tuned into GMWA recently, you will soon be able to here our 7 part section on our birth stories and why homebirth is our decision on YouTube.

We do, however, have a treat for you today!  Another fun in the kitchen video, we decided to do another "How To" tutorial. This time, Hans and I share a special recipe, one our family has passed down for generations. It is an absolute favorite to all who try it. We hope you enjoy it! (And be sure to watch all the way to the don't want to miss a thing!)

Hopefully we will talk again soon!

Bible Studies, Sermons, YouTube, and GMWA

Hello all!  Anna here again.  I hope you all don't mind that I've taken over writing for Hans so much!  It's been a very busy season, with Hans traveling much, many household projects, as well as lots going on over at Good Morning White America.

We are currently posting our audios that have been airing on GMWA weekly, over on our YouTube channel. It is for our ongoing series Biblical Nationalist Principles In Every Decision. We are a bit behind, but if you have missed hearing our episodes on GMWA, you can catch them over on YouTube. We are trying to post a few a week until we catch up, but for now, you can watch Household Products, Buying Quality Products, and Gardening and Organics.  We hope to get a separate YouTube exclusive video up this week as well for you all!

We are also very excited to be a part of Good Morning White America's launch of Essential Christianity Bible Studies. Starting Sunday, March 5th, Hans, Adam Grey, Clement Pulaski, and Grey Rebel will be teaching each study as we dive into the Bible and break it all down into the foundations of Christianity. (Edit: Hans speaking here) : This will be live on Google Hangouts, and although all are welcome, please understand that these studies presuppose the Protestant Reformation version of Christianity as truth, and the studies will operate under this assumption. 

The purpose of these studies are the glorification of Christ; edification of one another, learning to know and walk with Christ. The meetings will not be a place of debate between Protestant/Catholic/Orthodox, etc. The meetings will not be a place of debate between different Protestant denominations either. But rather, in these meetings we will be "endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." (Ephesians 4:3) --end of Hans' writing

Currently there is an East Coast and West Coast group, with Hans leading East, and Adam leading West. For more information on how to join, visit GMWA, and click under the "Churches" tab. You can also download, or buy a physical copy of the first installment of study guides on Genesis. Hans, Adam, and many others are praying this opens a door for God to plant physical local churches of like-minded believers across America. We hope you can join us!

Within the next month Good Morning White America will also be posting sermons, teaching important biblical topics. Adam, Clement, and Hans will be rotating every three weeks, with Hans being on the third each time. We pray that these will bless you and help you grow in your Christian walk!

Also, if you have children or know someone who does, we highly recommend Adam and Mary Grey's new book that has just recently been published! We are so very excited for them, and also very excited to finally have a children's book written from a godly Nationalist mindset!  Be sure to get a copy of Walls and Fences. We look forward to many more wonderful books like these from the Grey's!
